ditto. going on two months now at the new one.

At least on the civilian side. I spent 10 1/2 years at my old unit before deciding to move onto something else.

I've been doing my thing for almost 23 years. You guys are making me feel old and stable. I don't know which is worse.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

3 years here.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.
